Pretty sure our Colour Party had those ceremonial bayonet tips on the SLR, too.

Obviously an Air Portable one that prevents Paras from disemboweling themselves as they land

Ours didnt and the colour party were the only ones with Bayos marching at the shoulder, as we marched at the trail it would have entailed some nifty footwork or a lengthy sick parade for the escort companies!

what do the colour party have attached to their bayonets?
They are designed to stop the bayonets catching and tearing the colours. Our escort to the colours always used them.

There was one for the old 1907 sword aswell. They are to stop the material getting ripped when it inevitably brushes past the point.

I would like to know when the three on the left last saw an aircraft, and was it a Horsa Glider at Arnham?

Chap in the middle must be pushing 60!

Chap on the far right must be pushing 16!
